The 8 Most Underrated Acts of Kindness
There’s a lot of negativity in the world these days.
So if you’d like to be more positive, a new survey asked people which “thoughtful gestures” were the most underrated …and they’re SUPER simple to do.
The top response was “saying ‘thank you.'” 49% of people said this was an act of kindness that was underrated, because it does a lot more than you think.
The other top responses were: Smiling … giving someone a compliment …congratulating someone …cleaning up after someone … watering someone’s plants when they’re away…giving or sending greeting cards, or even e-cards…and “returning a lost item.”
Overall, the survey found that Americans perform about 6 thoughtful gestures a week . . . or 312 per year. If your life expectancy is 79 years, that’s 24,648 acts of kindness. And honestly, it’s not difficult to do more.
